Welling United 0-4 Grimsby Town

Padraig Amond's second-half hat-trick helped promotion hopefuls Grimsby ease to victory over relegation threatened Welling in the National League.

The Mariners forward headed past keeper Michael McEntegart to open the scoring just after the hour mark.

Amond reacted quickest to Craig Disley's knockdown to add his second before latching on to Andy Monkhouse's cross to complete his treble.

Disley then struck eight minutes from time to wrap up all three points.

Grimsby remained third in the table, with the home side three points from safety.

Grimsby Town assistant-manager Chris Doig told BBC Radio Humberside:

Doig on Welling v Grimsby

"The first-half was pretty poor in our opinion. Obviously not easy conditions to play in. We probably didn't play to the conditions enough in the first half.

"We got caught on the ball a few times and we seemed to give them a chance to counter against us by sloppy play.

"Second-half we were a bit more positive. Slightly more direct without going long all of the time. The first goal is always crucial and fortunately we got it."
